Pit Bull To Be Euthanized After Biting Girl
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A Butte judge has ordered a pit bull-cross dog to be euthanized for biting a 7-year-old girl several times.
The dog's owner, Cleve Brown, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor citations for having a biting, barking or jumping dog and for not having the dog on a leash. City Court Judge Steve Kambich fined Brown $300 and ordered him to pay restitution for the girl's medical costs after the May 20 attack.
Court records say the girl was bitten on the arm and when she tried to run the dog jumped on her back and continued biting her. She was treated at St. James Healthcare.
Animal control officers seized the dog and it was held at the Butte animal shelter pending the court ruling.
